Have you seen the Clexa sneak peek? I'd love to hear your insights on it!

I did and oh wow now I have to ramble about this

That scene is 50000% why I love Clarke and Lexa. Their story is about being more than just love interests, more than wrestling with their feelings for each other–there are civilizations depending on them. They are leaders. They have responsibilities and they have multiple layers that just make their interactions so damn interesting, like this one.

Clarke didn’t want to see Lexa. Lexa respected that–until she couldn’t wait any longer, and she had to take action, because there is a goddamn army at the door. She has to make moves. She needs Clarke’s cooperation for that. If she didn’t need Clarke, I’m sure she would have resigned herself to never seeing Clarke again, just making sure she was safe and letting her live in peace. She would have respected Clarke’s wishes as long as Clarke wanted.

But she couldn’t. She has responsibilities, and so does Clarke. Like it or not, Clarke’s people need to be protected, and Clarke has the power to protect them, but she can’t keep running from what she did, trying not to feel the pain. That’s what Lexa was calling out, that’s what Roan was calling out.

Lexa, at this point, was all business, as well she should be. She has no right to be personal with Clarke right now, to try to apologize or rationalize things. Clarke, however, was PERSONALLY hurt by Lexa’s abandonment, and tried to continue to make it personal. That’s where the clashing and the vitriol came in. Lexa was trying not to feel, and Clarke was trying to make her.

I also like that Lexa didn’t treat Clarke with kid gloves, she didn’t try to soften what Clarke did. Clarke hasn’t been able to face it in three months, she’s been running from the truth, trying to escape the pain however she can. She’s not healing. She won’t heal until she faces it head on and deals with what happens, openly, with no coddling or softening. I don’t think this was Lexa’s goal–Lexa just needed Clarke to take action, and she was attempting to remain detached and professional–but by stating openly what Clarke did, so that Clarke can’t escape from it, Lexa is actually helping her heal. She has to face her demons first, before she can overcome them. Lexa is going to help her with that. 

That’s indicative of their relationship: Lexa treats her like an equal. She treats her how she would expect to be treated if the situations were reversed. Leaders first, lovers second. Eventual lovers, obviously.

But all in all, I loved the scene because it reiterates the complexity of the characters and the impact their interactions are going to have on the story. Clarke and Lexa will be working things out as leaders on the political side, and they will be working things out on the personal side, and those are two separate storylines that will intertwine throughout the season. That’s why I love them. That’s why the media loves them. That’s why the writers love to write for them. They give the show a plot complexity and an emotional resonance that would be lacking without their relationship. Clarke and Lexa throughout this season (and the next, through the rest of the series) are going to be one hell of an interesting ride because their are so many factors at play in their relationship, and I cannot wait to see what Jason has in store.

Women Who Think Their Baby Being Bi-Racial Is A Birth Defect Sue Sperm Bank And Lose

Jennifer Cramblett and Amanda Zinkon didn’t quite get what they asked for when they purchased sperm from an Ohio sperm bank. What they got was a perfectly healthy, beautiful baby girl who, by Jennifer’s own words, they would never trade for anything. What they didn’t get was the blonde haired little girl they envisioned, as a mix-up at the Midwest Sperm Bank provided them with the sperm of a…

Everyone please click this link, and vote for Pitman!!

Glee is giving over $1,000,000 to music programs in financial need, and your vote could help my band program win up to $50,000

The band program at John H. Pitman High School is in great financial need. We fund-raise like crazy but it still difficult (and lately, impossible) to keep up with the costs of uniforms during marching season, instrument repair, music, and the trip we are (hopefully) taking to Washington D.C. next summer to play in the annual National Independence Day Parade. We are one of the bands that have been selected to represent the nation and, more specifically, California on the 4th of July. Our drums are in bad shape, far too many of our music stands are broken, and the school instruments must be repaired because many individuals cannot afford to buy their own.

By giving a couple seconds of your time, you would be giving musical opportunity to hundreds of students. Every vote counts.  :)

North West Keeps All Organic Diet, Rocks $50,000 Diamond Earrings: World’s Most Spoiled Baby?

We’ve always known that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West like to provide “the good life” for their 1-year-old daughter, but the details of Nori’s lavish lifestyle have gotten almost unbelievably ridiculous, even by Kimye standards. First we learned that North has a…

@supercopyboy was right, the best part of @butterfinger ’s new campaign #bolderthanbold is offering to pay up to $50,000 of a players fine for excessive celebrations. I personally love players showing emotion after a big play (even though the NFL is trying to tone everything down), but think they could have selected a better host than this Billy Eichner guy. Also, what exactly is bold about Butterfinger anyways?
